Security threat in Sabah now spreads to its west coast, says Zahid

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi says that the security threat to Sabah has now spread to the west coast area and no longer confined to the eastern coast of the state. "Previously, the threat was only in the east coast of Sabah, but security patrols in the east coast have now been tightened. The security challenge in Sabah now is not only confined to the east coast but has widened to the west coast too. "Intelligence information reveals that there are commanders from a sultanate appointed in every state legislative assembly constituency in Sabah. This is a serious security matter. This is a matter of real threat to the country." Zahid said this in his speech at the opening of the Security and Public Order Seminar 2016 at Universiti Malaysia Sabah in Kota Kinabalu today. Also present were Sabah chief minister, who is also the joint chairman of the Eastern Sabah Security Command (Esscom) Datuk Seri Musa Aman and Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Noor Rashid Ibrahim. – Bernama, March 5, 2016.]]>
